Hi Jean,

Thanks, I have my fingers crossed for our library having the book, otherwise
I will try SLSA, whether such a thing as interstate/interlibrary loan
exists, that is yet to be tested :-)

Mm, yes I think some of my 'own' families went to W.A. apart from my
husband's people.

No, not as yet, but will check the white pages online.

Oh if I had come in here 15 minutes earlier, or maybe more, I havn't
listened to radio online before, and it was nearly 9:30 our time, SO I AM
SORRY I MISSED YOU ON THE RADIO!!! *&*%^*&%
Would there by any chance be a transcript available from the station? Maybe
not...

Steph.

Steph, I hope that my contribution helps.

The "Agnew" book is published in WA and Hesperian is a printer specialising
in WA history.

Many people came here from SA, including some of my relatives.

Did you check the WA Post Officew Directories and the census lists yet?
always worth a look.

You probably do not receive Radio 6PR in SA, but I am being interviewed this
Sunday (tomorrow ) night at about 9.15 WA time. The interview is about the
Wiluna-Leonora area where the Cock people lived.

Happy hunting.

Jean Lyneham
